Refrigerators, CAD, and Circumcision #2: Cutting the cabinet and installion

10-17-2012 05:24 AM by oldnovice | 2 comments »

Cabinet Circumcision, Virtual and in Reality The entire cabinet is veneer covered particle board and is heavy. There were four screws in the bottom, four screws in the top, three screws in the back, and six staples holding each of the dividers (perhaps a little overkill?). The hardware was not added to the model to keep the model count below 60 as that is a limit for the free version of Creo. The cabinet top and bottom were doweled to the sides with eight dowels in each edge. Figure 8...

In the end, I had some nice sharp, accurate angles and two rocket stages cut out. I couldn’t resist stacking them, so here’s the final height, 70”: It took far longer...

I spent the time I had today out in the muggy shop sweatin’ and sandin’. I took the little palm sander to all the front edges of the plywood shelves and rounded everything over. Lesson learned: next time sand everything BEFORE you assemble…. I had decided over the weekend to forfoe adding trim to the front of each shelf because this thing will be primed and painted anyway…you won’t be able to tell what type of wood was used to begin with.
